Web Publishing

Working with Web Account Permissions in Webmail

Modifying permissions for access to your web site is now accomplished through Webmail. At the time your web site is created, a publishing group associated with it is also created. A person is also identified as the group administrator (owner). That person is able to add members to the publishing group in Outlook Webmail. For example, if your web site is www.uwec.edu/xyz, the site’s permissions will be granted through a group called WEB.XYZ.

NOTE: The number of people that have access to a web site is a decision each group or department must make. It is recommended, however, that you keep the number of publishers in the group small. By doing so you reduce the risk of files being overwritten or inconsistencies developing among the pages of your site. Good communication among publishers is important in this process.

This document covers how to set web account permissions in Outlook Webmail.
